in Magento Themes by henning (320 points)
Hi there,

I´m trying to add BlockReferences to my Magento-Theme. In TemplateToaster everything ist fine, according to the documentation.
But after adding the necessary block in cms.xml, including a predefined static block, nothing happens on my site. There is no static block displayed.

Any idea, what the reason is? Any changes in page.xml or whatever to fix this.

NB
I´d like to add some blocks in the site footer

Thanks for your support

Try to clear the cache.
System -> Cache Management

Nope. Nothing happens after clearing the cache.

I colored my reference blocks to see at least those changes withour content in my footer but nothing happens.

Any further ideas?

Hi Henning,

There is no need to code anything in the page.xml. Please follow the given steps :
1. To Create static block :-
Magento Admin -> CMS -> static block -> Add new block -> Fill all the necessary boxes marked with red star.

2. To place the static block created above :-
a) Magento Admin -> CMS -> Widgets -> Add new Widget instance .
b) In the Settings section
Type -> CMS static Block
Design/theme -> name of working theme and Continue
Fill all the necessary boxes marked with red star.

3. In Layout update section , click the Add Layout Update button. Then, do the following:
a) In the Display On field, select the page where you want to block to appear.
b) Set Block Reference to the position on the page where you want the block to appear.

4. In the panel on the left, select Frontend App Options. Then, do the following:
a) Click the Select Block button.
b) In the list, click to select the block you want to place.

and in last Save.

To see changes in reference blocks you have to put content in that block. As they will be visible only if you have added any content to them.
